Glen Eagle Golf Club
Good price for this time of year
Not all holes open, played half blue, then yellow. Lots of golf balls hiding under leaves. Still in good shape considering lateness of year.

Late Fall Golf
It was a chilly but playable day at Glen Eagle. Course conditions were as expected. A lot of staff were "winterizing" the course and there were no on-course staff. Players were directed to a hybrid list of holes between the 3 nine-holes. Started at the Blue (3 holes) then 3 Yellow and then the remainder of the front-nine on the Blue. The back-nine was on the Red. Unfortunately, the pro shop sent out players on both sets of tees even though at the turn we had to wait for those beginning their game on the Red course. Very slow on the back nine.
The course is very nice and has a lot of different elevations. We couldn't find many on-fairway yardage markers and some of the Par-3s had no visible markers at all.
There was no clubhouse services available although there is a conference center with facilities available but not to the golfers. We had to negotiate for a cup of coffee.
I'm sure the course is nice during the height of the golf season and would recommend it.

Course looks to be closing for season
Normally this course is a great day with plenty of challenge and good conditions. Playing conditions yesterday were frankly poor. Aerated/sandy greens and leaves left on the greens lead to disappointment. Looks like they're closing for the season. May be worth the hot deal price however be prepared for less than average conditions.

I really enjoyed the course. Great day
Good layout. Really nice greens. Course well looked after.
Only negative was the hard sand in the traps. Need new sand
Overall a fun course

Zero course management
Course over books - they have golfers teeing off and at the same time having WEDDING PARTY TAKE PICTURES DRIVE THROUGH COURSE - while golfers are still on course. Why would you allow Wedding party to take pictures right in the middle of your paying golfers round. We found the starters very dismissive - I 'm not interested in playing 6 HOUR ROUNDS. Also finshed round Finally at end of the course and have to drive back - NEVER heard of such stupidity - ALL the cart paths are dirt so you get the behind dust thankyou very much for that - again poor management and very impolite staff -I am a paying customer and my group should be given courtesy - as if we don't want you hear - we don't need your money - we don't make your round enjoyable -Take this Glen eagles of Gold Now -its pathetic and I will definitely tell others never to go to that unprofessional outdated course ever.

always been a good course
gleneagle always been a good course,just thought it was a little disorganised,as i got a prepaid tee time but they couldnt figure out who to put me with as i was alone,and the starter was the most unfriendly person i seen ,just so abrupt,and sounding rude,when people pay to play on any course,the staff should show how much they appreciate the golfer,not show the golfer that they are doing em a favour to play on there course,

A public course that looks and plays like a private course.
Glen Eagle has been around for around 50 years. The mature trees and undulating fairways, with many elevation changes make for many uneven lies. The course punishes you if you stray from the fairways. The trees that line most fairways often will block any attempt to reach the greens from the rough, forcing you to play back into the fairway before having a shot at the green.
The greens were lightning fast and true on the day that we played. The course was in very good shape, for the most part except for some ground under repair near the cart paths, which is not uncommon in a public course.
The pace of play was leisurely, due to late season weekday booking. We never waited more than a couple of minutes on the tees and we weren't being pushed.
As an old guy, I appreciate that.
